Fort Wayne Police, Zesto's work for children's bicycle safety

Friday, July 26, 2013 - 10:13 am

Fort Wayne Police Department Chief Rusty York, along with Mayor Tom Henry and Zesto’s franchise owner Chris Conner announced Thursday a partnership to promote bike safety for children.

FWPD officers will distribute 400 coupons over the rest of the summer to children they observe who are wearing safety helmets while biking. The coupons are for small ice cream cones that can be redeemed at any of the four Zesto’s locations in Fort Wayne.

Henry praised a resident for broaching the idea with him via e-mail and with Zesto’s for participating in the program, while York said that it’s always a welcome opportunity for police officers to interact with the community in positive ways.
